Raiders' Antonio Brown attacks Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster on social media

Raiders' Antonio Brown attacks Steelers' JuJu Smith-Schuster on social media

Antonio Brown might have left Pittsburgh, but he has not left Twitter, for better or worse.

After another social media slight from former teammate Antonio Brown, the Steelers wideout used Twitter to respond on Sunday. Twitter rushed to Smith-Schuster's defense, pointing out that Brown didn't play in all 16 games past year and has a higher fumble to catch ratio in his career than Smith-Schuster. Brown in Oakland. Smith-Schuster as Pittsburgh's No. 1 receiver. Seeing the young receiver pass him in catches and receiving yards nearly certainly factored into Brown's angst. His fumble was a huge blow to the season but there was no benefit for Brown to say what he did to a guy who has always been positive to him in public. However, considering that Texans safety Justin Reid has already come to Smith-Schuster's defense, tweeting that he "can't want to smash this dude", perhaps Brown might want to avoid making too many enemies online.

Smith-Schuster - who is still on his rookie contract while Brown is on his third extension - had expressed his support for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger shortly before then.

She also said Monday that she had a Wells Fargo bank account in the United States and had been exploring business options there. Such interactions could make Mar-a-Lago a tempting target, particularly for cyberattacks.

Smith-Schuster posted a quote from Mark Twain saying, "Never argue with a fool". Today, he shared with the world a DM he received from Smith-Schuster in 2015 asking for advice.

That tweet was soon followed by this advice from Brown: "Do not listen to any National Football League player who haven't got paid yet!"

Other Trojans past and present weighed in, with universal backing for Smith-Schuster and criticism of Brown's approach. But if the Raiders can improve in Year 2 of Jon Gruden's second run as head coach, a potential playoff matchup could be in the cards.
